Poi and Staff: Light Show by Risachantag Poi and Staff: Light Show by Risachantag
More fun with glow poi!

These were taken by the wonderful , with his super-spiffy camera at Genghiscon. Each is a long exposure, of several seconds.

^^ In these, my sister is using a staff (the yellow and blue twirl in the first picture) and I'm using three different kinds of poi; a multi-colour glowstick set([link]), a rainbow strobe poi set ([link]) and a second, larger rainbow strobe light set, which flashes on and off extremely quickly to create a dotted pattern. In the last three pictures I'm using a combination of the second strobe poi and the glowsticks.

Moves included: 5 beat weave, butterfly, flower, overhead butterfly to split rotations.

:XD: ...and because every time I post about poi, I'm asking what it is; please take a look at [link] for info on poi.

I did something similar with a camera and a barbecue lighter for a photography class. I used black-and-white film, so there weren't any pretty colors, but it was still one of the best pictures I ever took. :D

Awesome, those are the best pics of glow poi I've seen so far (I'm a poi user myself, so I'm not gonna be irritating and ask what it is).

Admittedly, I've not seen that many pics of people doing glow poi, but yourself and your sister look like you were having fun. Also, you can do five beat weave? O.o Wow...I am in awe!
